The Leading Norwegian to English Translation Service
Norwegian Document Translation for Business and Government Interests
Norwegian is, for the most part, mutuallly intelligible with the Danish and Swedish languages – however, the written language is very much its own distinct form. Norwegian to English translation is important for things like financial announcements, especially within the geo-engineering industry, because Norway is one of the leading countries for both business investment and government interest. Other reasons for Norwegian to English translated documents and materials are Norwegian-English website translation, visa translation, birth certificates and green cards, and Norwegian made products and services that have English speaking customers and consumers. Because only a very minute percentage of English speakers know Norwegian, if any communication is to be made for Norwegian businesses, or for Norwegian visitors or immigrants to the UK, the US or Australia – Norwegian to English translation is imperative.

Spoken vs. Written Norwegian Language Translation
While there is no national standard for Norwegian spoken language, there are several national Norwegian written language standards and accepted forms. The particular form of written Norwegian used by any given person varies entirely by choice and regional location. However, the written language form of the source document does affect the translation of Norwegian to English.
- The two official forms of written Norwegian are Bokmal and Nynorsk. Bokmal (which means “book language”) is a Norwegian-ized form of Danish, and what roughly 85% of the population uses more on a daily basis – though that 85% also uses Nynorsk frequently as well.
- Nynorsk (new Norwegian) is based upon purely Norwegian dialects, in opposition of using Danish. Nynorsk tends to be used by those living in Western Norway, and is the official writing standard for 4 of Norway's 19 counties.
- Aside from the two official forms, there are also unofficial variations of Bokmal and Nynorsk. Roksmal is considered more conservative than Bokmal, and Høgnorsk is considered more conservative than Nynorsk.
- All of these written forms of Norwegian, and the difference they make in their English translation, make it imperative to use only a professional Norwegian translation service for any Norwegian to English translation.
